night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel under the bus." he also said on "60 minutes" over the weekend that the president made a mistake by not meeting with netanyahu. the next family we met with certainly agrees,ays the president still has time to meet with netanyahu. here is their position on u.s./israeli relations. >> he has a problem on his hands of major, major proportions, he needs some help. i think that president obama has not given him any help. >> michael, you're nodding. >> i agree. the possibility of iran developing nuclear weapons capab

there's no difference of israel and the united states. with the red lines. u.s. and israel committed to preventing iran of achieving a nuclear weapon and president obama echoed the themes a couple of days ago. however, i don't think the white house and the u.s. wants to be pushed in to on such a high profile stage battered with making a public ultimatum of red lines to iran so the speech is out. used graphics. netanyahu, former ambassador. when you listen to dozens of speeches in the room, never hurts to have some props with you. they do it in congress a lot. >> i think for a lot of people perhaps it worked. one question is, as he was speaking there were some bursts of applause. i'm curious, were those assembly members? was that public audience? who would that have been? >> reporter: well, we're trying to figure out but i think the delegations, especially here israel and a little bit with the palestinians, brought in extra people with the delegations. they sat way in the back. they may have needed tickets for this and think israel may have felt a little, well, they rallied from the l

that up in the gulf of alaska, even the weather pattern's pretty tranquil on the west coast of the united states. and you can see just to the north here some of the southern portion of those clouds on that cold front to the south of that storm that will be moving in through canada during the day today, but overall, it's a very quiet day, just a few clouds are lingering on the coast. so, the forecast for today. again, with that storm up in alaska, usually the winds are out of the south and kind of spreads some of the warm air to the north, so we're going to be 82 today in portland, 83 there in boise and even seattle, after a couple days in the 60s, getting back up near 74, and we're seeing very enjoyable, warm-weather conditions continuing interior of california and down there in arizona. that's a look atweather, enjoy lasts. even san diego today not bad, up near 80. i like those big, huge storms. i'm a big fan of that "deadliest catch" show. i can just picture the boats on the big, huge storms in the gulf of alaska. >> it's always nice to get insight into your mind, bill, this early in th
thing he pledged to do if he were to become president of the united states is repeal obama care and roll back all of those same provisions for americans. there are millions of americans who have benefited and now have health insurance who didn't before, thanks to obama care. the young adults who can stay on their parents insurance until they're 26, seniors who are saving an average of $600 on their prescription drugs thanks to obama care, closing the doughnut hole. and the first thing that mitt romney would do is the incredibly compassionate thing of repealing all of those reforms and leaving seniors and children and young adults in a situation where their health care is prohibitively expensive and if you have a pre-existing condition you can be dropped by insurance companies once again. >> it is a little bit of a whiplash factor to figure out, is it an advantage or disadvantage, talking about it or not talk about it. i do want to speak though and get your, pert background about the two big factors in your home state, senior vote and jewish vote. when it comes to medicare, the fight is n
